Join the FreeMumia Movement to End Mass Incarceration 9/14!

September 3, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

On the day following the 41st anniversary of the Attica massacre of courageous prisoners rising up against intolerable oppression, FreeMumia and others, come together to fight mass incarceration and to demand the closing of Attica as a symbolic commitment to the larger goal. They build on the powerful commemoration that took place last year at Riverside Church.  Fighting to/for:

–  End Mass Incarceration

–  Free Mumia & All Our Political Prisoners

–  Close down Attica

–  No Solitary Confinement

Join to hear a special panel on building a movement to end mass incarceration with:
Michelle Alexander, Angela Davis, Jazz Hayden, Marc Lamont Hill,  and Dr. Cornel West.


Additional speakers include:  Pam Africa and Soffiyah Elijah.
